Boating on Rock Creek Lake
« on: April 05, 2012, 12:52:39 PM »
Hello All,

The question is can you put a motor in Rock Creek Lake?  I thought you could only troll but my buddy thinks you can put a 4 stroke in the water.  Please settle this debate for us.

Thanks,
Acquaman

Acquaman,

Motor boats are available for rent at the resort.
I don't know of any restrictions on the public, except for size maybe, and a speed limit.

Stick around, I'm sure that you'll get an answer here, soon.

The resort rents a four-stroke boat...there is no limitation on anything other than speed...it's trolling speed only on RCL.  If you can get it in the water, you can use it.

Getting it in the water may be the issue.  The ramp is not in good condition and if the water is low this year...it will be a challenge.
The creek is waiting...

Thanks for the info. Will 4 wheel drive get the boat in? Is it a pain to park a trailer up there as well? I'm guessing it counts as a vehicle.

You'll definitely want to use 4x4 to get it in...thing is, the ramp is shallow and long.  In the spring it might be okay, but by mid-summer it becomes a challenge.  A 12-14 foot aluminum boat's perfect for RCL...bigger boats get hard to launch.
